Im Mittelpunkt dieses legendären ungarischen Romans steht eine Gruppe junger Freunde, die sich, statt um ihr Studium, mehr um die wahren Dinge des Lebens kümmern: um Frauen und Alkohol und vor allem um Geld. Sie lehnen die erstarrte Welt, in der sie leben, ab und begegnen der gesellschaftskonformen Betriebsamkeit mit Verweigerung. Sie haben die Unmöglichkeit jeder Revolte begriffen und sehen der Zukunft mit Unbehagen entgegen. Auch der Vorstellung von Liebe trauen sie nicht, für sie zählen nur intercourse und die damit verbundenen Möglichkeiten Geld zu machen - ihre einzige Konzession an die Verhältnisse.
Bekenntnisse eines Zuhälters - erzählt in einem beinahe unbeschwerten, leicht melancholischen Tonfall - stellt unser inzwischen erstarrtes Bild der wilden und politischen Sechziger auf den Kopf. Das schicksalhafte Jahr 1968 - wie sah es hinter dem eisernen Vorhang aus? In seinem wilden, komischen und turbulenten Roman zeigt uns László Végel die Welt von der anderen Seite.
